October -- the eighth monthnow the 10th month

Middle English octobre

October has always had 31 days.


Yehovah has His own calendar:

We are now in the 8th month called Bool, day 10, not Cheshvan or Mar Cheshvan as Judaism and some Messianics say.

1Kgs.6 [38]… in the month Bul / Bool, which is the eighth month

Zech.1 [1] In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the Yehovah, sayig [2] Yehovah hath been sore displeased with your fathers.[3] Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith Yehovah of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith Yehovah of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith Yehovah of hosts. – read the rest again, if you like

 Today’s Topic:

Set your heart and your soul

 to seek Yehovah your God

עַתָּה, תְּנוּ לְבַבְכֶם וְנַפְשְׁכֶם, לִדְרוֹשׁ, לַיהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם

1Chr.22 [19] Now set your heart and your soul to seek Yehovah your God; arise therefore, and build ye the sanctuary of Yehovah God, to bring the ark of the covenant of Yehovah, and the holy vessels of God, into the house that is to be built to the name of Yehovah.

Deut.4 [29] But if from thence thou shalt seek Yehovah thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. [30] When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to Yehovah thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;
[31] (For Yehovah thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.

1Chr.16 [7] Then on that day David delivered first this psalm to thank Yehovah into the hand of Asaph and his brethren.
[8] Give thanks unto Yehovah, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.
[9] Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works.
[10] Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek Yehovah.
[11] Seek Yehovah and his strength, seek his face continually.
[12] Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
[13] O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones.
[14] He is Yehovah our God; his judgments are in all the earth.
[15] Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations;
[16] Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac;
[17] And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,
[18] Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance;
[19] When ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it.
[20] And when they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people;
[21] He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes,
[22] Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
[23] Sing unto Yehovah, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation.
[24] Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations.
[25] For great is Yehovah, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods.
[26] For all the gods of the people are idols: but Yehovah made the heavens.
[27] Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place.
[28] Give unto Yehovah, ye kindreds of the people, give unto Yehovah glory and strength.
[29] Give unto Yehovah the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship Yehovah in the beauty of holiness.
[30] Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.
[31] Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, Yehovah reigneth.
[32] Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof: let the fields rejoice, and all that is therein.
[33] Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of Yehovah, because he cometh to judge the earth.
[34] O give thanks unto Yehovah; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.
[35] And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise.
[36] Blessed be Yehovah God of Israel for ever and ever. And all the people said, Amen, and praised Yehovah.

2Chr.26 [1] Then all the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in the room of his father Amaziah.
[2] He built Eloth, and restored it to Judah, after that the king slept with his fathers.
[3] Sixteen years old was Uzziah when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Jecoliah of Jerusalem [4] And he did that which was right in the sight of Yehovah, according to all that his father Amaziah did.
[5] And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought Yehovah, God made him to prosper.


2Chr.11[16] And after them out of all the tribes of Israel such as set their hearts to seek Yehovah God of Israel came to Jerusalem, to sacrifice unto Yehovah God of their fathers. [17] So they strengthened the kingdom of Judah, and made Rehoboam the son of Solomon strong, three years: for three years they walked in the way of David and Solomon.

2Chr.14 [1] So Abijah slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David: and Asa his son reigned in his stead. In his days the land was quiet ten years.
2] And Asa did that which was good and right in the eyes of Yehovah his God:
3] For he took away the altars of the strange gods, and the high places, and brake down the images, and cut down the groves:
4] And commanded Judah to seek Yehovah God of their fathers, and to do the law and the commandment.
5] Also he took away out of all the cities of Judah the high places and the images: and the kingdom was quiet before him.

2Chr.15 1] And the Spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded:
2] And he went out to meet Asa, and said unto him, Hear ye me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin; Yehovah is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.

[3] Now for a long season Israel hath been without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law.

[4] But when they in their trouble did turn unto Yehovah God of Israel, and sought him, he was found of them.
5] And in those times there was no peace to him that went out, nor to him that came in, but great vexations were upon all the inhabitants of the countries.
6] And nation was destroyed of nation, and city of city: for God did vex them with all adversity.
7] Be ye strong therefore, and let not your hands be weak: for your work shall be rewarded.
8] And when Asa heard these words, and the prophecy of Oded the prophet, he took courage, and put away the abominable idols out of all the land of Judah and Benjamin, and out of the cities which he had taken from mount Ephraim, and renewed the altar of Yehovah, that was before the porch of Yehovah.
9] And he gathered all Judah and Benjamin, and the strangers with them out of Ephraim and Manasseh, and out of Simeon: for they fell to him out of Israel in abundance, when they saw that Yehovah his God was with him.
10] So they gathered themselves together at Jerusalem in the third month, in the fifteenth year of the reign of Asa.
11] And they offered unto Yehovah the same time, of the spoil which they had brought, seven hundred oxen and seven thousand sheep.
12] And they entered into a covenant to seek Yehovah God of their fathers with all their heart and with all their soul;
13] That whosoever would not seek Yehovah God of Israel should be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman.
14] And they sware unto Yehovah with a loud voice, and with shouting, and with trumpets, and with cornets.
15] And all Judah rejoiced at the oath: for they had sworn with all their heart, and sought him with their whole desire; and he was found of them: and Yehovah gave them rest round about. [16] And also concerning Maachah the mother of Asa the king, he removed her from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove: and Asa cut down her idol, and stamped it, and burnt it at the brook Kidron.

2Chr.20 [1] It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle.
2] Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There cometh a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be Hazazon-tamar, which is En-gedi.

[3] And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek Yehovah, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.

[4] And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of Yehovah: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek Yehovah.

[5] And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of Yehovah, before the new court,
6] And said, YehovahGod of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee?
7] Art not thou our God, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever?
8] And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying,
9] If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help.
10] And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom thou wouldest not let Israel invade, when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not;
11] Behold, I say, how they reward us, to come to cast us out of thy possession, which thou hast given us to inherit.
12] O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.
13] And all Judah stood before Yehovah, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.
14] Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of Yehovah in the midst of the congregation;
15] And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith Yehovah unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.
16] To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel.
17] Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of Yehovah with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for Yehovah will be with you.
18] And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before Yehovah, worshipping Yehovah.
19] And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise Yehovah God of Israel with a loud voice on high.
20] And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in Yehovah your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.
21] And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto Yehovah, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise Yehovah; for his mercy endureth for ever.
22] And when they began to sing and to praise, Yehovah set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.
23] For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.
24] And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.
25] And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much.
26] And on the fourth day they assembled themselves in the valley of Berachah; for there they blessed Yehovah: therefore the name of the same place was called, The valley of Berachah, unto this day.
27] Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem with joy; for Yehovah had made them to rejoice over their enemies.
28] And they came to Jerusalem with psalteries and harps and trumpets unto the house of Yehovah.
29] And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries, when they had heard that Yehovah fought against the enemies of Israel.
30] So the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet: for his God gave him rest round about.
31] And Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah: he was thirty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi.
32] And he walked in the way of Asa his father, and departed not from it, doing that which was right in the sight of Yehovah.
33] Howbeit the high places were not taken away: for as yet the people had not prepared their hearts unto the God of their fathers.

[34] Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of Jehu the son of Hanani, who is mentioned in the book of the kings of Israel.
35] And after this did Jehoshaphat king of Judah join himself with Ahaziah king of Israel, who did very wickedly

Isa.51[1] Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek Yehovah: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.
2] Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.
3] For Yehovah shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of Yehovah; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.

[4] Hearken unto me, my people; and give ear unto me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people.
5] My righteousness is near; my salvation is gone forth, and mine arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust.

[6] Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

[7] Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.
8] For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be for ever, and my salvation from generation to generation.

[9] Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of Yehovah; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon?
10] Art thou not it which hath dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; that hath made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over?
11] Therefore the redeemed of Yehovah shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

[12] I, even I, am he that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass;
13] And forgettest Yehovah thy maker, that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and hast feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? and where is the fury of the oppressor?
14] The captive exile hasteneth that he may be loosed, and that he should not die in the pit, nor that his bread should fail.
15] But I am Yehovah thy God, that divided the sea, whose waves roared: Yehovah of hosts is his name.

[16] And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people.

[17] Awake, awake, stand up, O Jerusalem, which hast drunk at the hand of Yehovah the cup of his fury; thou hast drunken the dregs of the cup of trembling, and wrung them out.
[18] There is none to guide her among all the sons whom she hath brought forth; neither is there any that taketh her by the hand of all the sons that she hath brought up.
[19] These two things are come unto thee; who shall be sorry for thee? desolation, and destruction, and the famine, and the sword: by whom shall I comfort thee?
[20] Thy sons have fainted, they lie at the head of all the streets, as a wild bull in a net: they are full of the fury of Yehovah, the rebuke of thy God.
[21] Therefore hear now this, thou afflicted, and drunken, but not with wine:
[22] Thus saith thy Lord Yehovah, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more drink it again:
[23] But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.

Hos.10 [12] Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek Yehovah, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.

Amos 5 [6] Seek Yehovah, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Bethel. [7] Ye who turn judgment to wormwood, and leave off righteousness in the earth,
[8] Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: Yehovah is his name:
[9] That strengtheneth the spoiled against the strong, so that the spoiled shall come against the fortress.
[10] They hate him that rebuketh in the gate, and they abhor him that speaketh uprightly.

Ezra.6 [21] And the children of Israel, which were come again out of captivity, and all such as had separated themselves unto them from the filthiness of the heathen of the land, to seek Yehovah God of Israel, did eat, [22] And kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with joy: for Yehovah had made them joyful, and turned the heart of the king of Assyria unto them, to strengthen their hands in the work of the house of God, the God of Israel.


Pss.77[2] In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.

Pss.37[32] The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.

Prov.11[27] He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.

Prov.14[6] A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth.

Prov.15[14] The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.

Prov.17[9] He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.

[11] An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.

[19] He loveth transgression that loveth strife: and he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction.

Prov.18[1] Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.

[15] The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.

Pss.34 [1] I will bless Yehovah at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.[2] My soul shall make her boast in Yehovah: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
3] O magnify Yehovah with me, and let us exalt his name together.

[4] I sought Yehovah, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
5] They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
6] This poor man cried, and Yehovah heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
7] The angel of Yehovah encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
8] O taste and see that Yehovah is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
9] O fear Yehovah, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.
10] The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek Yehovah shall not want any good thing.
11] Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of Yehovah.
12] What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
13] Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
14] Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
15] The eyes of Yehovah are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
16] The face of Yehovah is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
[17] The righteous cry, and Yehovah heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
18] Yehovah is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
19] Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but Yehovah delivereth him out of them all.
20] He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
21] Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
22] Yehovah redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

Pss.105 [3] Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek Yehovah. [4] Seek Yehovah, and his strength: seek his face evermore.

Prov.28 [5] Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek Yehovah understand all things.

Acts.17 [16] Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.
[17] Therefore disputed he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him.

[18] Then certain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because he preached unto them Jesus, and the resurrection.
[19] And they took him, and brought him unto Areopagus, saying, May we know what this new doctrine, whereof thou speakest, is?

[20] For thou bringest certain strange things to our ears: we would know therefore what these things mean.
[21] (For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.)[22] Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
[23] For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

[24] God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
[25] Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
[26] And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
[27] That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
[28] For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

[29] Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.
[30] And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
[31] Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
[32] And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear thee again of this matter.

Matt.7 [7] Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:[8] For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

John.4 [23] But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship Him. [24] God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.



A few verses pertaining to the heart

[33] Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding: but that which is in the midst of fools is made known.

Prov.15 [7] The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so.

Yeshua said:

Matt.12 [34] … for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

Matt.15 [18] But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.[19] For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies [20] These are the things which defile a man…

In closing:

Again, watch your hearts. We have to be consciously aware of setting our hearts to seek Yehovah.

Shabbat Shalom
